Paperplay - Monochromatic

Wanted to post the card I made for the 90 min scramble over on the Hero Arts FLICKR group on the 30 November hosted by Judy.  These are so much fun and it was the first time I managed to play along.  The Challenge for this "scramble" was a one layer card.

Got very inky and the time goes VERY fast but lots of fun.  There is a timetable for the scrambles right here.

I used the inking technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire in her holiday thinking inking class - block background (week two, project one) using distress inks (I used milled lavender) and memento london fog (grey) for the sentiment and snowflakes.  The snowflakes were from the Hero Arts Tree-mendous Poly Clear set CL465 and the sentiment from CL343 Holiday Sayings. 

This card is from a box of 50 white card blanks by Royal Langnickel (slight watercolour texture to the paper) - purchased in Cork Art Supplies/Cardz n Scrapz.

Still doing the happy dance that I won a fab Digital kit from Hero Arts for this scramble.  Off to play with it now.... thank you Tami, Judy and Hero Arts.

Now, not my week on Paperplay - but it is Thursday so that means a new challenge.  This week's challenge is Monochrome and is set by Vera.  We would love for your to play along and have two new wonderful DT members strutting their stuff today.  Feel free to check out all the DT creations here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stay warm!.

Woohoo Congrats to you!!

Loved the block technique she showed a fe weeks back - definitely going to try it - did you use watercolour paper, it's hard to tell from the pic?
